ST MARY'S Catholic College's new school captains have been introduced after they gave a speech at the Kingaroy Remembrance Day service.

Bridget McDonald is currently in Year 11.

She is interested in netball and tap dancing and has plans to become a high school teacher.

Harrison Lucas has an interest in rugby league, golf and hockey and also wants to study to become a high school teacher after school.

Mr Lucas said he was honoured to speak at the service.

"How much does our past define us and for how long? Our past does identify us, the good, the bad and the ugly,” he said.

"We are here united by our past in honour and with gratitude for all those who have served our country in many ways.

"We are citizens of the South Burnett, free from the ravages of war.”

Bridget said generations needed to work together.

"As youth we ask that you don't leave us the future but lead us into the future,” she said.
